La Gaviota

La Gaviota. Fernan Caballero. That alone would have granted the author a place among Spanish writers, but the fact that Caballero is a pseudonim behind which stands a woman, transforms the author into a novelistic character in her own right. Cecilia Bohl de Faber's life is as fascinating as her characters. Born in Switzerland, educated in France, Cecilia Bohl became a highly successful woman writer in Spain, even regarded as the Spanish answer to Walter Scott, not a minor feat in the Spanish society of that time.
